    • Brave Browser

      I just switched to using the Brave Browser because Google Chrome is a resource hog. Brave doesn't show any screenshots in the Professional version of ManicTime.

        • Timesheet - Month Report Group by Week or add a Week hours total.

          When looking at the TimeSheet month date range, I would like to have the weekly work hours shown as a total by either grouping them by week or then add a sum that totals all weekly hours used by tag.

          • Store "Only billable" option value with saved Timesheet report

            I love the saved Timesheet reports and use them a lot. Once thing I noticed is that when you save a Timesheet with a name, all the criteria is saved - except the "Only billable" option. I have a specific report ("Billable - Last Week") which I use to create invoices for clients, but whenever I open it, I have to click the "Only billable" checkbox, since the fact that it is selected is not stored with the other report criteria.

            Similarly, if I then load a different saved Timesheet, which has "Only billable" unchecked, it is showing that it…

              • Would be great to see a Docker image of the Server

                Would be excellent to be able to spin up a container of the Server without going through some of the other configuration issues. Also if you ported it to .net Core, you could make the server run on Linux pretty easily. Would love to help you with this.

                  I can see screenshots for many apps but nothing for google chrome. I would like to see a screenshot of what I was browsing. At least I wish I'd have the full link to those pages.

                  • Add hyperlink: click date in timesheet to take you to the day

                    Thank you for allowing us to request features and vote on them.

                    My request: When we generate timesheet reports, we may have neglected to enter enough notes for billing or would like to see what else we worked on that day to make sure it was properly tagged. If the date or column was hyperlinked to take us back to the Day tab and to the specific day in question, it would save us the time of having to remember and locate the day.

                    Thank you.

                    • minimum amount of time before recording

                      I'd like to change the minimum amount of time that the application starts recording at. It is currently set at 5 seconds before it records, but id like to change it to 10 seconds before it records.

                      • Advanced Search - Remain Open Option

                        The 'Advanced Search' Window should have the option for it to remain open after you select an item it found.

                        This would be useful when you are exploring your timeline - looking for a specific event, and are trying to isolate it from a number of search results.

                        Currently the window closes and you have to reopen, restart the search and find your context all over again.

                        • Saving filter / search request

                          It would be nice to be able to save filters (or searches, or finds, or whatever you call the box when you Ctrl-F) WITHOUT saving them as an AutoTag.

                          As far as I can tell, this isn't something that you can do right now on the desktop version.

                          If I write a complex search string (or even not that complex, but hard to remember) that I expect to use again, the only thing I can do is save it as a text file and copy and paste it back when I next need it.

                          Thanks

                            • Disable saveing thumbnails of screenshots

                              At me, thumbnails need about 40-50 percent of diskspace.
                              So it should be possible to disable generation of thumbnails.

                              And MaincTime should ignore missing thumbnails (*_thumbnail.jpg)
                              If I delete thumbnails manualy, many exceptions in errors.log generated

                              2017-06-23 01:48:19.751 E 2624 9 35543166 Exception {"errorType":"System.IO.FileNotFoundException","message":"Die Datei \"C:\\Users\\my_username\\AppData\\Local\\Finkit\\ManicTime\\Screenshots\\2016-11-11\\2016-11-11_00-13-03_thumbnail.jpg\" konnte nicht gefunden werden.","stackTrace":" bei System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)\r\n bei System.IO.FileInfo.get_Length()\r\n bei Finkit.ManicTime.Common.Plugins.Timelines.Screenshots.CaptureFile.GetFileSize(String filePath)","data":{}}

                                  The new Skype app for windows 10 is nice. but am forced to use the old desktop version as the skype calls plugin works only with the desktop version. It would be great if the plugin works for the new app too

                                    • Update plugin samples for version 3.7

                                      I want to retrieve data from ManicTime using Tag Source plugin & then find some data patterns using Machine Learning.
                                      Currently this sample doesn't work. Please provide working sample for latest ManicTime.

                                      • Ability to delete Screenshots through the timeline option menu

                                        Could you also add the option to delete the Screenshots through the context menu?

                                        You already let me highlight a segment of time and then right click to delete: Tags, Computer Usage, Applications, Documents, and ALL. I know I can go to the folder where the screenshots are saved but that is quite time consuming.

                                        Why do I want this? I often work on sensitive information but still want ManicTime to track my time on different projects. Screen capture is incredibly helpful for auditing my day but some of the data throughout the day needs to be protected. I'd like…

                                        • Screenshot plugin enhancements

                                          F12-Screenshots need to be bigger, full screen view would be great. Show all screenshots filtered by application would be great. Play back screenshot timeline with left/right arrow keys would be great.
